Have you ever had a persimmon? To me, they taste like the cross between a mango and a papaya. Needless to say, they are a fruit from the cosmos and this is the time of the year to get ’em fresh! Not to mention, they are loaded with Vitamin C, A, various B vitamins, Fiber, Potassium, and many other nutrient/health benefits.
So here is the breakfast of your life time that is gluten free, sugar free, and dairy free. And you never would have guessed unless I told you. So eat up!
1/4 cup Quinoa
1/4 cup Almond Milk
A Pinch of Salt
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Cardamon
Take your quinoa and rinse it thoroughly through a fine mesh strainer. Then, take out a small pot and fill it with 1/2 cup of water and put on high heat. Once boiling, add quinoa and turn the heat to a medium/low, then cover with lid. Let cook for about 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, skin and dice the persimmons, place in a frying pan with about 1/4 cup of water and added spices. Let simmer until the water has absorbed fully and add almond milk and stir. Turn off heat and place cooked quinoa and persimmon sauce in a bowl and serve. Add more Cinnamon and cardamon, if needed. ❤
Note: If you can’t find persimmons in your local health food store or it’s not persimmons season, you can easily substitute peaches or your favorite fruit instead.
